I Wish I Wish

I wish I wish On a moon so bright, Please grant my wishes As I dream tonight. Keep my family safe And bless them with prosperity, Touch their hearts with love And teach them sincerity. Grant me the courage To face my fears, And the simple strength To move my peers. Bless me with the gift To touch another heart, And make them believe Compassion is an art. Give me the patience To turn an enemy into my friend, And help bring violence To a peaceful end. Teach me to appreciate All that I possess, And banish the yearning For material success. Guide me with strength Through each difficult task, And greet each day With a confident mask. Oh harvest moon So big and bright, Please grant my wishes For the words I write.
